Talent Program of Internships

The CVC Talent Program of Internships promotes science and innovation and encourages research in highly talented young students.

The program offers undergraduate and master students an opportunity to learn about research culture, technology transfer and innovation in an international and diverse environment with more than 100 researchers from more than 20 different countries. It is a unique opportunity to experience how is it to work in a research environment.

Interns will have to face specific research challenges guided by our researchers. They will be provided with high-performance computing facilities and trained in the current state-of-the-art methodologies related to computer vision at large at the same time as they participate in regular complementary activities (reading groups, seminars, etc.).

Requirements

FAQS

The program is addressed to students from university degrees related to Artificial Intelligence, Data Engineering, Computer Science, Physics, Computational Mathematics and Data Analytics. As a general rule, we expect applicants to fulfill the following requirements:

  • To be currently enrolled in an undergraduate or master university program.
  • Proficiency in written and spoken English.
  • Programming skills including Python & Deep Learning frameworks (Pytorch / Tensor Flow).
  • Additional skills will be also required for each specific project.

Undergraduate and master students worldwide with excellent academic records are invited to apply for an internship award at CVC.

Because of funding regulations, this program is mostly oriented to EU citizens, however outstanding applicants from other nationalities will also be considered (no additional expenses will be covered).

No. CVC will not cover additional expenses such as visa applications for non-EU citizens, insurance or others.

Selection of interns is based on merit and potential measured in terms of academic records and personal achievements. Proactive and soft-skills attitudes, like participation in community activities and capacity for teamwork, are also considered.

No. Participation in the CVC Talent Program does not imply any contractual relationship between CVC and the beneficiary.

If the student, for any reason, voluntarily withdraws or interrupts the program, any unduly received payments must be returned.

Rosa Sensat Student Fellowship

Rosa Sensat
Student Fellowship


This award offers a first contact with a research center, its personnel and its activities. The "Rosa Sensat" awards constitute the entry gateway to a research ecosystem.

Students in their middle years (2nd & 3rd) of their undergraduate studies (having passed more than 100 ECTS of the study) or, exceptionally, bachelor students (Spanish Baccalaureate) before admission to the university.

Selected candidates will receive a gross stipend of 1,600 euros for a 3-month stage. It is expected a 20-hour-week dedication, or 240 hours in total. A working timetable schedule will be negotiated at the beginning of the stage.

Selected candidates will participate in small, very well-defined technological viability studies or research projects, in order to discover, understand, use and evaluate different generic, most-used computer vision and artificial intelligence techniques.

Elena Maseras Research Fellowship

Elena Maseras
Research Fellowship


This award is intended to let the student achieve an advanced level of understanding of the state-of-the-art techniques in a specific topic in computer vision and artificial intelligence.

Students in the last year of their undergraduate studies.

Selected candidates will receive a gross stipend of 3,600 euros for a 6-month stage. It is expected a 20-hour-week dedication, or 480 hours in total. A working timetable schedule will be negotiated at the beginning of the stage.

Selected candidates will participate in a challenging project, proposed by either a research group, a company, or a public administration. As a result, the student will use the scientific method to identify weaknesses, alternatives, and opportunities for potentially improving the results.

The work done might constitute the Bachelor's Degree Final Project, but this is not compulsory.

Maria Capdevila Research Fellowship

Maria Capdevila
Research Fellowship


This award is intended to let students identify all the necessary components to solve a specific computer vision and AI problem, evaluate the resulting system, and elaborate a report that describes the achieved results together with the selected algorithms and models.

Master students.

Selected candidates will receive a gross stipend of 4,500 euros for 360 hours of on-site research work (online dedication is not possible). As a reference, a 3-month stage of 30-hour-week dedication is expected. A working timetable schedule will be negotiated at the beginning of the stage.

Selected candidates will undertake their research internship at a CVC research group or a company/ organisation (industry or public administration). Either way, the student will always need a supervisor who is a CVC staff member.

The work done might be considered a Master's Dissertation and/or for submission to scientific conferences, but this is not compulsory.

For all the awards, the following activities will be required during the stage:
(included in the working hours, up to 5% of the total hours)

  • To attend at least one research seminar organized at CVC
  • To participate in at least one outreach action aimed to bring research closer to citizens
  • To give a public presentation of the research work done (download template)
  • To submit a 2-page report briefly explaining the work done (download template)

Application process

All applications shall be submitted exclusively online. Required application material shall be uploaded to the application form and must be complete to be considered. To apply for an internship, suitable candidates are requested to prepare and submit the following document package:

  • The candidate’s updated Curriculum Vitae in PDF format
  • Tentative dates of the stay (internships can start between July-November 2024)
  • Preferred working hours (morning, afternoon)
  • A presentation, motivation letter describing the candidate’s background, topics or areas of interest at CVC, and future career plans
  • Choose your CVC tutor. It is encouraged a letter of support from a CVC researcher (with date, name and contact details). This will allow candidates to get to know the work that the CVC researcher does. If agreed by both parties, the CVC researcher can be his/her tutor during the internship
  • A scanned copy of the candidate’s academic transcripts (from previous and current studies, as far as available), in English, Spanish, or Catalan, together with the average academic score
